Wilderness First Aid

Wilderness First Aid Training is a valuable and needed skill for today’s youth and adult Scouting leaders, and is required for those attending BSA High Adventure Bases and other outdoor settings more than 30 minutes from emergency services.  This 16-hour first aid course for back country situations includes first aid skills and practice, plus leadership training for how to handle group dynamics while on trek.

A Wilderness First Aid Course will be offered at Camp Berry on April 26 and 27. The cost for BSAC participants is $60.00; Out-of-Council participants, $70.00.  To register, BSAC leaders need to contact Tammy Speer at bsactraining@gmail.com.  After March 31, registration will be open to ALL councils.
